New Telescope
The University’s proposed sci
ence building has been assured of a
new custom-built telescope, Dr. A.

department, disclosed recently.

Poll Conducted
A campus poll conducted in the
spring of 1944 determined what the
students thought was needed in the
building. From this poll, the main
facilities to be included were decid

New York University game,” he

impression that many basketball
fans in New York City had changed,

As worthy grand chief of Alpha
Tau Omega, Col. MacGregor is tour
ing the northwest chapters of his
fraternity before returning to New
York. While in Eugene, he was the
guest of Karl W. Onthank, dean of
personnel administration. Friday
night a banquet, sponsored by the
University Interfraternity council,
was given in his honor at the Os
